Carbon Emissions

Minimising our Carbon footprint

During germination, malting barley produces CO2 as part of its natural growth cycle. Because the plant uses CO2 from the air during development, the exhaust is neutral. 

Boortmalt is also an active member of Euromalt, the European association of the malting industry.  Together with our fellow malt producers, we strive to improve our carbon foot print.
